Michel Gay, l'Association des écologistes pour le nucléaire (AEPN): L'énergie nucléaire continuera a jouer un role significatif dans le futur bouquet énergétique mondial, mais une meilleure valorisation de l'uranium sera nécessaire dans de nouveaux réacteurs pour poursuivre au-dela de ce ciécle.

Ken Kok is a nuclear engineer and leading member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers advocating for advanced nuclear power technology with spent fuel recycling. Used nuclear fuel and depleted uranium are already mined and milled resources that can power all of America's electrical energy needs at 1994 levels for over 700 years. This is more valuable than fossil fuels and would not require mining for these needs. Combined with fossil fuels, and uranium and thorium still in the ground, the United States and the rest of the world potentially have enough energy to improve the lives of people everywhere for as far as we think civilization will last.

Andres Daniels, Writer about ultra-modern history: nuclear power, radiation, post-Cold War (1989-), Rwanda, modern Afghanistan, and Japan: The discovery of fission created a new kind of fear, not simply a new iteration of the previous responses to new technology. This new fear was profound, disquieting and all encompassing. By the time nuclear power was introduced, anxiety and concern about nuclear weapons had already fostered perceptions that left a long-lasting legacy that would taint nuclear power for decades. It is time to overcome the general aversion to learning about this important energy source, and to understand this key technology. In an age of rising air pollution, it has never been more crucial.

Eric Jelinski has engineering degrees in three disciplines, teaches nuclear engineering curriculum at the University of Toronto, had a full career with the nuclear power industry in Canada and was President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - Canada. In this short essay, he outlines a few simple steps to make large improvements in energy programs for North America. So simple, but national leaders haven't implemented them so far.
